I always wonder how Mega Million Jackpot winning ticket would look like on the scanning machine. Do they play song when you hit the jackpot?

    In Wis my 5 out of 6 ticket said something like invalid ticket or something like that.

    In Illinois my 5 out of 6 ticket made a comment like that and said to check with the clerk....

    Nothing no listing of the prize.

      I would be curious to know, especially if I wanted to keep a low profile.

        Check with the clerk?

        Oh man, talk about a prompt that doesn't inspire any confidence and the last person you would trust. LOL!

          Mark--

          It is interesting that you said this..

           

          I am in WI and scanned my last ticket today.  It said "invalid", so I rescanned it and it said "not a winner".  I double checked the numbers and, it was in fact, not a winner...so invalid just might be invalid!

            I always wonder if they would play the music if you hit the jackpot. I'm just going to wait until I win the CA jackpot tonight.

                Invalid can be just a bad scan. Can be either a wrinkled ticket, or a bad print, or just a bad read.

                  keep dreaming. you need to get a life... its obvious that you fantasize about winning a little too much.

                  perhaps hard work and getting a job would be the right mindset? dont play the lottery to bail you out of life. the funny thing about depending on the lottery the way you do is that there is a higher chance of you dying in a car accident on the way to go buy tickets than you ever hitting 5 of 6 numbers (if you want, you can factor that value by subsitituting it with any number greater than 1 to see how it compares to matching all 6 of 6 LOL)

                   

                  so move on with your life. play the lottery for fun. play it on the side. and nothing more. if you win, great - at least you'll have everything else in life still going for you (your job, family, and etc). otherwise, you will be destitute for the rest of your life.
